Anti-Piracy Bill To Cost Taxpayers $47M To 2016

Only $10M - $12M a year? What a bargain! roll eyes (sarcastic)

According to a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimate released this week, between 2012 and 2016 PROTECT IP will cost the U.S. taxpayer tens of millions of dollars. "Based on information from the Department of Justice (DOJ), CBO estimates that implementing [PROTECT IP] would cost $47 million over the 2012-2016 period, assuming appropriation of the necessary funds," the report states.
